Our Working Waterfront ~ 6/23/23

Sea Marine’s new mascot & crew member “Tug” who fills the paws of the beloved “Bear” who now rests on the big ship in the sky

Every month, KPTZ’S Chris Bricker, along with co-hosts Port Commissioner Pam Petranek and Port of Port Townsend’s Director Eron Berg, bring you the news, issues, and stories of the people that make up our vibrant maritime community. In this repeat airing, our Port’s Capital Project Director and Port Engineer Matt Klontz gives us an ongoing projects update. Pam gives us some historical perspective on Point Hudson – from the S’Klallam peoples, to boatbuilding and the evolution of a seaport, to the present-day boatyard of Sea Marine. Partners Pat Shannon and Chris Bakken, friends since childhood, are shepherding trade, craft and apprenticeship into Point Hudson’s 21st Century.
